I've had sciatica since 2005. I've had flare up every now and then but this recient flare up has got me scared. This flare up has been going on since November. I have nights where I'm too sore to lay down and a sleep in a chair. A couple of days before Christmas the pain went away. I was able to sleep laying down again. I thought it was a Christmas present from GOD because I pray every night for him to take away my back pain. Then this past Saturday the pain returned with vengence. It hurt to stand, sit and lay down. I had a scheduled chiropractor appointment so I went to that. Usually when my back hurts that bad I go to the chiropractor and after treatment the pain is not so intense. Not so this time. I couldn't stay on the decompression machine the whole time I was supposed to because the pain in my left leg was too much. That just made things worse. Monday night was horrible. I couldn't lay down which meant no sleep so at 7 Tuesday morning I broke down and took a cab to the emergency room at the hospital in town. The emergency doc wants me to get a MRI done. I had one done 4 years ago and I never got a chance to look at it. First I need to get a medical doctor to make the appointment. I have no insurance. If decompression thearpy no longer works for me then what's left? Why is this happening to me now?
